#Samsung took a big leap with the #GearS2 by making it compatible with non-Samsung devices as well. This move was welcomed with open arms as previous Gear smartwatches were limited to just Samsung’s Galaxy handsets.
A new report is now mentioning that the Korean manufacturer is almost ready with an iPhone version of the Gear Manager app, which should officially introduce support for the Gear S2 and the Gear Fit 2 to the iPhones. This app is seemingly in beta testing, indicating that a launch might not be far away.
This could pave the way for more customers willing to try out Samsung’s innovative smartwatch tech. Frankly, the Tizen-based wearables have barely seen any love from the market. But this is largely due to the dominance of the Apple Watch in the market and the hesitance among the Android (and Samsung) fans to try out smartwatches. Not to mention the slew of Android Wear offerings that are available out there.
Do you think iPhone compatibility will make the Gear S2, Gear Fit 2 and the upcoming Gear S3 more popular among iPhone users?
